The War Axe of the Night is an Axe crafted from Demonite Bars. It is stronger than the Gold and Platinum Axe, but weaker than the Meteor Hamaxe. It has a Crimtane counterpart, the Blood Lust Cluster, which is stronger but also slightly slower. Like all axes, it is used to cut down trees, cacti and giant glowing mushrooms.

While it is useful as a melee weapon, its slow speed means that it is equally if not less powerful than the Gold and Platinum Broadsword, and especially the Light's Bane in regular combat situations, despite having a higher base damage.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When hitting an enemy behind you with the war axe, the knockback will pull them toward you.
  • Despite being one of the tools that does not use shadow scales, this is the strongest out of the three Demonite tools.
